is a shady diamond's seller's worst nightmare!!! I would like to thank everyone on this site for all the help they have given us in our search for an engagment ring diamond. Yesterday, my boyfriend and I went looking for engagment rings at several places, one being a jewelry exchange. I cannot begin to tell you how some of the vendors tried to fib to me and then got completely turned off and upset when I called them on it- thanks to the knowledge I aquired here. One man told me that all SI1 and SI2 diamonds are eye-clean. I know that may be the case in some, but not all SI diamonds. I told him that, he said that was false. He showed me an SI1. I was able to find the inclusions on it, just by looking at it. He told me "NO way". I pointed out to him where I saw them, her took his loop, saw them too! Needless to say my boyfriend was impressed! Others told me good symmetry and good polish is the highest rating for them. Others told me that there was no cut above very good. The list goes on. It was great knowing that I have the knowledge to not be taken advantage of. Thanks!
